NASA Scientists have joined forces with the Breakthrough Listen project in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.
NASA brings to the table their newest planet hunting probe TESS (Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite) as well as the powerful James Webb Space Telescope scheduled to launch in 2021, which should be able to probe the atmospheres of multiple TESS-discovered planets for biosignature gases.

Breakthrough Listen will be looking for "technosignatures" (indicators of advanced alien civilizations) scanning promising worlds with a range of instruments, including South Africa’s very own MeerKat radio array.
